Technical Data
Catenin alpha1 (CTNNA1, Catenin (Cadherin-associated Protein), alpha 1, 102kDa, HGNC:2509, CAP102, FLJ36832, alpha 1 (102kD), alpha-E-Catenin, alpha-Catenin, alphaE-Catenin)
Cellular Localization: Cell Membrane and Cytoplasmic

Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.

Synthetic peptide: EKQDETQTKIKRASQ conjugated to KLH, corresponding to amino acids 873-887 of Human alpha 1 Catenin.
0.01M PBS. pH 7.4
Recognizes alpha-E-catenin (102kD). Staining of the alpha-E-catenin band in immunoblotting is specifically inhibited with the alpha-E-catenin immunizing peptide (human, amino acids 873-887). Species Crossreactivity: Crossreacts with Human. Expected to crossreact with Mouse (100% identity with immunogen) and Xenopus laevis (100% identity with immunogen) due to sequence homology.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
